Stray - Stand Up And Be Counted (1975)


The sixth album from this British band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

I have told the Stray story in my five previous reviews of their albums. Basically, the band was a hard rock band who started at the same time as Led Zeppelin started. The difference was that Stray was not that good, their management was incompetent and they made some very strange choices in their career.

Thanx to a couple of CD boxes and Classic Rock magazine, Stray has now got a bit of a recognition. Deserved recognition.

They released a couple of good albums in the hard rock genre among three not so good albums.

The music on this album is not that hard and it is more in the laddish soft rock football chants genre. 

There are some hard rock here. But most of it is soft and not particular interesting.

This is not an album showcasing Stray at their best.
